Josephine Stone AM, member of the Australian War Memorial Council at the War Cemetery, Cowra. The Cemetery is the resting place for four of the Australian Soldiers killed in the Cowra Breakout, as well as other service personnel from Cowra who lost their lives in training or from illness. There is a single RAF member interned in the cemetery among the Australians, beautifully maintained and considered a showpiece for modern military cemeteries. The Australian War Cemetery is maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission through the Australian Government’s Department of Veterans Affairs.
